Best The Weeknd Songs
The Top Ten
The hills is madness. Just can't get enough. Weeknd rose to another level with this hit. Take a bow the weeknd. - Ark-M
This song made me a weeknd fan to be honest. Really chill song
First Weeknd song I heard that made me fall in love. It is amazing and I memorized all the words about the third time I listened to it. Really makes other artists sound like crap.
This song is everything that is The Weeknd. - PhenomentalOneV 40 Comments
This deserves to be number one. The Weeknd's new stuff is great and all, but none of it can compare to Wicked Games. Where do I start? The production is spacious, atmospheric, and almost somber. The lyrics are about regretting your past and looking for love at the lowest point of your life. The multitracking on the vocals in the chorus are outstanding, and the guitar in the background is beautiful. An overall amazing song, and definitely The Weeknd's best song.
Needs to be #1. enough said. Many fans can relate the dark and sinister passion you can hear in the song. Bandwagons just put "The Hills" at #1 because its his "best yet"...No were near this song
Wicked Games always catches me in my feelings, I love the song so much, I am huge fan of The Weeknd and I can relate to Wicked Games. It deserves the number one spot.
The lyrics, the rhythm, the darkness behind the song. That's the core of The weeknd - rui_29V 25 Comments
This is some good stuff! Sure, it's not as good as In the Night, but damn is it great. Let's hope the rest of the album is as good as this is! - Spark_Of_Life
Really awesome song can't stop listening to it.
Dude, this is easily his best song. The beat is phenomenal, the flow is amazing, and is extremely catchy. This is the only one of his songs that never seems to get old.
It's a song but we can't understandV 30 Comments
Awesome song this song made weeknd recognize all around the world
Easily the Best song by The Weeknd till date.
This is such an amazing song, by the way why is #23. It should be #1.
Seriously? This should be number 1 not no.4!V 27 Comments
So...where to begin?
The production is absolutely fantastic. The synth, while smoggy, is heavily atmospheric and actually sounds like it's part of the powerful bass. The percussion is absolutely fantastic and matches the song perfectly. The Weeknd's performance is a lot less annoying than usual (cough cough The Hills).
But what makes this song truly a masterpiece are the lyrics. They tell of a stripper who was abused when she was younger and the trauma it caused her. This is an absolutely cold story with a lot of offer. The thing is only Abel could pull something like this off. The vocal melody is absolutely fantastic, the framing is fantastic, the progression is fantastic...this is literally perfect. Plus the ability to lip sync to it is fantastic. This is an obvious 5/5. - WonkeyDude98
Once this is released as a single, people will know just how great this song is. As with every song by The Weeknd, the lyrics are beautiful, but his voice is absolutely incredible in this piece.
I agree with the person who said it's not the best. I don't like hearing "She was young but she was forced to be a woman all the time" on my way to play rehearsals.
The Weeknd doesn't often sing about social issues but when he does, he blows everyone away. - PhenomentalOneV 16 Comments
The production values are outstanding out of all of his songs, with jaw-dropping vocals and a beautiful guitar strum is played in the back. What could be better?
One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The gorgeous guitar instrumental along with Abel's incredible vocals and phenomenal bass lines comes together to create a wonderfully serene production.
The beat is so smooth and the guitar in the background adds so much. My favorite hands down.
Easily, his best song. The flow of singing instead of raping the bars just takes it away. The smooth bass, can be heard anytime of the day.V 12 Comments
There's been comparisons to the Weeknd and Michael Jackson. I think this song is the closest one you can make.
How is this 17! This is his best song, he will never top this. This is number 1 on my list.
This song gives you vibes its for sure bound to be a hit.
SHOLUD B IN TOP 3.. NTHG WORNG IF ITS EVEN AT FIRST PLACE.. THIS SONG HAS REVELED THE REAL SHADE OF THE WEEKEND.. SO KEEP PUSHING IT UPV 14 Comments
It's dark, violent, sexual, trippy, and most of all, it's The Weeknd. What more could you ask for?
This is an amazing song that is underappreciated. I'm gonna leave it at that
This song is so amazing it's probably my favorite on the album - Ajkloth
House Of Balloons is awesome, Glass Table Girls sucks. - PhenomentalOneV 10 Comments
An interesting song with a fantastic bass session
One of the best from his house of balloons album - Ajkloth
Incredibly catchy. - PhenomentalOne
The background music sets a tone that becomes complete with his almost skeptical yet compelling vocals which persuade you to want to join his lifestyle and experience the story he paints in the song
His flow, voice, and lyrics just bang! Simple.
Amazing. It's dark, it almost makes me want to experience his lifestyle. Should totally be number 1 on this list.
XO is awesome, The Host sucks. - PhenomentalOneV 5 Comments
After listening this I just fall for this singer.. The most seductive song ever! Event the lyrics are justifiable and beautiful...
Number 14?... Really guys?...this is undeniably his best song... I think it should be #1
Remind me of fifty shades of grey
Why was this song on Fifty Shades Of Grey? Ruined the beauty of it. - PhenomentalOneV 13 Comments
One of his best songs, yet extremely underrated. His strained yet beautiful vocals tie into the amazing lyrics which give you an emotional and beautiful look into his life. This is definitely one of his more vulnerable songs where he expresses his sorrow and flaws
I can't pick which one is the best, but He speaks French in this song
"Baby I'm a pro at letting go, I love it when they come and go." - Ajkloth
His french is definitely a plusV 2 Comments
He pours his heart out in this, amazing song. My favourite by him, he's an amazing singer
Favorite song from him behind Wicked Games. Beautiful chorus and vocals, and the production is outstanding.
Definitely my favourite, amazing vocals and production, and he puts so much passion and emotion into it
Its different from other songV 5 Comments
So underrated but what a song, and like someone said, along with tears in the rain, it's a hidden monster in the history of the weeknd - rui_29
Abel is basically pouring his heart out in this song, should be in the top 10!
My favorite song from Kiss Land and My 2nd favorite song by Abel.
ITS SUCH A GOOD SONGV 2 Comments
The story telling, the video, the passion, all amazing. If this was a later more known work of his, no doubt it would be higher. Definitely a pyre diamond buried under the sheer excellence of "House of Balloons".
We get an idea of the type of people who are voting if this is lower ranked than In The Night. - jaspyboy
No debate. Filled with unimaginable soul and crazy subtext behind the lyrics.
I would put this in his top 10 and the video is creative probably one of the best music videos I've seen.V 1 Comment
This should be placed much higher.
One of his more famous works, with a catchy chorus and innovative lyrics
This shows how good of a songwriter the weekend was - Ajkloth
It must be in top 3...V 15 Comments
My favorite song, calming and good to fall asleep to
Its just good honestly plus drake kills it
Amazing song, most relaxing thing to hearV 1 Comment
An incredible vibe. An amazing voice. Original. Darkness. Catchy. Perfect.
Every time you try to forget who I am, I'll be there to remind you again, that you know me...best verse
My current favorite from him. This should zoom up this list in no time. What a song!
Has a nice rhythm, but isn't that great of a lyrics song... - rui_29
In this track, The Weeknd beautifully covers and adapts "Dirty Diana" by Michael Jackson.
Didn't know that Abel self-realizing could be so beautiful - PhenomentalOne
Tears in the rain is a beautiful song from Abel. It should get more attention. Listen to the lyrics and I promise you will love it. If you're an XO fan like me, you should already love every song by Abel.
This is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard...from any artist. Enough said
Hear it, it's a long music and full of eargasm too, amazing - rui_29
